Nikolaos
Stylianou
The 10th week of the league found Keravnos Strovolou to be the total triumph after succeeding an awesome road win in Larnaka against the champion team of AEK 63-79. Coach Livadiotis troops were better than their opponent and even though that there was an x factor for the home team, as there was the unknown Montenegrin power forward Vladimir Dasic, the visiting side was quite serious and solid with great effort and passion from all the players, were able to finally get this precious (easier than though) victory, as obviously Alex Harris who left the Cyprus team to join forces to the Greek club Doxa Lefkadas in A1 league, was a serious loss for Coach Linos Gavriel, but it wasn't the only reason of the negative result for the champions..

The first period was quite nerve breaking for both the teams as they were quite unsuccessful in most of their offensive tries with quite many "empty" minutes with the score remaining on a very low levels and Keravnos getting a small lead of 1 in a 16-17 in the period with Mohamed Abukar (208-F-85, college: San Diego St., agency: Two Points) already scoring 9 points and the home team having issues in the rebounding area, as other than Primoz Brezec (216-F/C-79) from AEK nobody else was able to grab a rebound, while on the other end, Keravnos had a team work with Mohamed Abukar, O' Brien and Parks being able to lock most of the "air fights"

The second period was quite decisive for the game since the visitors were able to get some precious points from nearly all the players who were a continuous thread for AEK's defense while the home offense was terrible with Primoz Brezec fighting alone at both edges... Keravnos further his superiority and team effort was able to increase the deficit taking it to +8, 23.31' to the end of the first half with Neofitou, Nikolaos Stylianou (198-F-88, college: W.Texas A&M) and Parks entering in the scoring board where they back up successfully Mohamed Abukar's. Ross's and O'Briens' points. The end of the first half was only 31-37 as Tomislav Petrovic helped a bit his team and cut the deficit at the end.

The third period was more or less the same with Keravnos keeping a safe distance but even though the score went to +9, 43-52 and 4.27'' to the end of the third period with Nikolaos Stylianou's long three pointer, AEK found the strength and with Courtney Pigram, Sizopoulos and Palalas three pointer's cut the deficit by the end to 54-59 as Sizopoulos missed the three pointer which would have taken the score into the single point.

The four and final period belonged totally to the visiting side and Coach Livadiotis, AEK cut further the deficit to 56-59 with Primoz Brezec feeling quite tired (let's not forget also his age) and 8.09' to the end the three pointer of the captain of the home team Panteli cut the deficit for the last time to a derby sound result the 58-61 of that particular time became at the end 63-79 with the total domination of Keravnos who outscore his opponent with the awesome 4-18 in the last 8 minutes!! Parks, Nikolaos Stylianou, O' Brien and Neofitou were the leading figures in this period, while AEK Larnakas lost nearly all the shots of the period with the only points coming from Primoz Brezec as nobody else scored on behalf of the home team..

Keravnos dominated in all areas but the rebounding one was the most crucial with 32-44 while in assist 15-20, turnovers 16-12, and steals 4-5 the domination was not so big. The MVP of the game was the Cyprus international forward Nikolaos Stylianou not only for his 16 points but also for his 4 rebounds, 5 assists and no turnovers in 22 minutes of game, while Coach Livadiotis use his 8 players with an accurate time in the court as other than Barker and Mohamed Abukar played exactly the same time, while four of them had double digits. On the other side Coach Livadiotis saw an amazing double-double figures by Primoz Brezec with 23 points and 15 rebounds but that was it!! Nothing else for the champions, Petrovic and Panteli try harder but they were all alone..
Keravnos increase the deficit no in the board to 9-1 followed by AEK's 7-3 and APOEL 5-5
Top scorers:
AEK: Primoz Brezec 23, Panteli and Petrovic 9 per head, Biggs 6
Keravnos: Nikolaos Stylianou 16, Mohamed Abukar 16 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists and 4 turnovers, Barker 12, Parks 10, and O' Brien 8

On the other game of the week, APOEL added his 5th victory after beating the last seated ETHA with 62-71 and Wright and Burnatowski being the leading figures scoring 21 and 18 points respectively while from ETHA, Esho and Walker scored 21 and 16 respectively. ETHA is at the bottom of the board with a negative record of 2-8

Lastly on the opener of the week, Apollon added his third victory after beating PAralimni with 67-63 in a total derby with the Cyprus International guard Iraklis Pittakas being the leading figure and the MVP of the game with 22 points followed by Marshall who scored 19. On behalf of Paralimni which is officially the most unpredictable team of the league, top scorer was Eric Washington (178-PG-93, college: Miami, OH) with 17 points. Apollon in now at the 5th place of this mini league with 3-7 record while Paralimni is at the fourth place with 4-6 record..
